I met Sergio in 2012. We became friends, immediately! Sergio's work ethic on the trumpet is exemplary, and he is a very fine player.As a person, he is warm and friendly, with a wonderful sense of humor. His great personality, and his professionalism are traits that make him a very well-balanced person. He is someone that you want to have in your section, and someone that you want to be around. I am proud to call Sergio "meu amigo"! Bruce Lee Co-Owner of FACET MUTES Northern Brass Mouthpieces
